Trippie Redd (born Michael Lamar White IV on June 18, 1999) is a rapper and singer from Canton, Ohio. Growing up, White always had a passion for music, stating in an interview that he recorded his first song when he was 10 years old. After losing his brother when in a car accident when he was 14, White saw that as a chance to start seriously perusing music to honor his brother, who did music before his passing.
White released his first mixtape in 2016, but it wouldn't be until 2017 after he dropped "A Love Letter To You" where he would start to accumulate buzz, and start working with acts such as Music/6ix9ine, XXXTentacion, Famous Dex, Diplo, Travis Scott and more. On August 10th, 2018, White released his debut album, "Life's A Trip", which debuted at #4 on the Billboard 200.

Tropes associated with Trippie Redd are:
- Arc Number: 14, which he chose because it popped up so often in his life—as in, he grew up on 14th Street, recorded his first song at 14 years old, and so on.
- Catchphrase: "Big 14 you know what the fuck going on" and variants of it are the best example of this.
- Dream Team:
- Him and XXXTENTACION on "Fuck Love"
- Him and Machine Gun Kelly on "Pill Breaker" (which also features Blackbear) and "Red Sky", and MGK's "Candy" and "All I Know".
- Him and Chino Moreno on "Geronimo".
- Genre Roulette: Life's a Trip had flavors of Alternative Rock and R&B while also keeping both trap rap and more lyrical rap on the project.
- Non-Appearing Title: "Dark Knight Dummo", "Love Scars", "Uka Uka", "Gore" and many others.
- Sequel Song: "Love Scars" and "Love Scars 2/Rack City" both appear on the same mixtape back-to-back.
- Mansion Musik features "SWAG LIKE OHIO, PT. 2", featuring Lil B, which is a sequel to the latter's song "SWAG LIKE OHIO".
- We Used to Be Friends: Trippie and 6ix9ine went from frequent collaborators and best friends to having a bitter beef complete with Instagram live meltdowns every other week from one over the other after Trippie publicized 6ix9ine's sexual assault charges.
- A Wild Rapper Appears!: Was this on Julia Michaels' "Jump".
